This summer, join award-winning poets and performers at Get Lit for a two-week masterclass for teens (ages 13-19) in the art of poetry and spoken word.

We will claim classic poems and write original responses, digging into what makes a great poem and a memorable performance. Students will take self-expression to the next level by exploring their connection to the audience and poetic persona- alongside our most pressing social issues, to build the tools they need to become powerful voices for their generation.
At Get Lit, we say:

“Claim your poem, claim your life.”

7/27-8/7 Monday-Friday from 10 am-2 pm

A two Week 10-day intensive filmmaking program, students will learn the aesthetics of cinematography and editing while developing their skills as visual storytellers. As part of the process, students will learn how to write treatments and pitch their ideas, collaborate with other young filmmakers, and see a project through to completion. We’ll celebrate their work with a virtual premiere release party.
